Halsey Announces Intimate Era Concert Shows, Teases New 'Nightmare' Project

Halsey is teasing her new album by revisiting her Badlands and Hopeless Fountain Kingdom eras for a few nights only.
Hours after mysteriously blacking out her Twitter and Instagram accounts following the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, the singer-songwriter announced six intimate concert dates, in which she's speculated to perform her debut and sophomore albums in full.
The "Colors" musician's new shows will launch at Webster Hall in New York with a two-night showcase on May 8 (Badlands) and May 9 (Hopeless Fountain Kingdom), and proceed to California venues in San Diego, Carson, and Mountain View from May 31-June 2, before its final stop at Wembley Stadium in the U.K.
Tickets for the show go on sale via Ticketmaster starting at 5:17 p.m. EST today (May 3).
That's not all, though, as Halsey fans pointed out on Twitter, it seems the pop star has also led fans down a rabbit hole speculated to signal her new album — or at least to another project, tentatively titled "Nightmare." Per tweets and findings from followers (see below), the "Bad at Love" artist provided a link in her Instagram and Twitter bios that, when clicked, invites fans to share their worst nightmares.
Once on the page, fans are then asked to select from an option of nightmares they've been personally affected by to learn more about its meaning. Some even suspected the choices — among them, "Demons/Ghosts," "Animals/Insects," "Falling," "Drowning/Suffocation," etc. — are clues to the track list for Halsey's forthcoming third studio album.

As we previously reported in March, the artist promised her third LP would be "a loud one."
